We have had quite a few patients calling or asking us in the office about certain conditions. I realized that it might be a good idea to send out a quick email blast periodically with some of these questions and answers….
First and foremost, although we treat the spine, Chiropractic and Acupuncture are about SO much more than back pain and headaches :). What Dr. Lindeman is actually treating is the nervous system. Your nervous system is the very first thing to form in the womb. The nervous system controls and coordinates every muscle, organ, tissue and cell in the human body. Interference to the Nervous System causes “dis-ease” or improper function of whatever those nerves were “talking to.”
Think of it as a cell phone call, if you were on the phone and heard “Joe….it’s your father bzzbzz he’s…” and then the phone cuts out. You would jump to a lot of conclusions and act on improper information (is your father ill or did he win the lottery). Interference, caused by misalignment (subluxations) of vertebrae and other bones, cause your muscles, tissues, organs and cells to act on improper info and all sorts of things can happen. Removing this interference restores communication and therefore HEALTH 🙂
So with this in mind, how can chiropractic help with:
Vertigo: Sometimes caused by inner ear malfunction (again controlled by the nervous system), sometimes by brainstem interference (most often caused my misalignment in the upper cervical spine). Acupuncture helps tremendously with this as well 🙂
Allergies/Ear infections/illness: Chiropractic has been shown to boost the immune system. Again, the upper cervical spine is of paramount importance for immunity. Also in the upper thoracic spine, the nerves innervate (talk to) the thymus one of the chief immune organs. There are also specific acupuncture points that help with immunity. We have numerous testimonials speaking to the positive effect of chiropractic/acupuncture on reducing ear infections/reducing duration of illness and reducing allergy severity and frequency.
Blood Pressure: Again C1 is related to this issue. Also the mid spine houses nerves that directly innervate the heart, lungs and other organs. Interference to these nerves can cause all sorts of disturbances. Ask us for a SPINAL NERVE CHART the next time you are in.
It is truly our pleasure to help everyone we possibly can, live longer, live better and feel fantastic! Our mission is to help as many people as we possibly can in our lifetime, so please feel free to ask us questions regarding you or anyone you know that we might be able to help!
